Tonight, is the greatest of all our Christian feasts. ‘If Christ hasn’t risen from the dead’ St Paul once wrote, ‘we are the most pitiable of all peoples.’ Because it is not easy to identify with, we depend on our faith to make it our own. New life can come from hopeless situations – not just at the end of our lives but in the many setbacks of life. Tonight, we pray that as baptised people the Spirit of Jesus who rose from the dead will be the truth that guides our lives. Alleluia.
